Inventor Tim Kehoe
has been searching for the elusive colored bubble
for a long time. Through his experimentation he's stained his eyes a deep blue, along with his car, his kitchen, and his bathtub (he's also permanently stained the family dog). But in 2005, after 11 years and over $500,000 in funding, Kehoe successfully created a colored bubble that wouldn't stain. His invention, Zubbles
, was given the "Best of What's New, Grand Award" from Popular Science.
Yesterday, after an additional four years of refining the production process (and meeting with all manner of attorneys, scientists, and Fortune 100 companies)... Zubbles
officially became available for pre-order. Popular Science posted a follow-up article
, which includes some video. News of its availability is undoubtedly making many kids happy, and making many adults... as happy as kids. [previously]
